FAQ’s Getting Started

What if I feel hungry on the diet?
Make a notation on your food diary to discuss with the nutritionist on your next appointment. Frequently, timing of meals and snacks require adjustment. Meanwhile make sure you are not
Waiting too long between meals/delaying meals
Skipping meals or snacks
Reducing the amount of food recommended on your meal plan.
Helpful hints:
Increase the amount of vegetables to help you feel full.
Vary foods for enjoyment – repetitive choices may lead to a feeling of dissatisfaction.
Pre-plan for hunger attacks by keeping raw vegetables handy. Broth, hot beverages, water, and seltzer may help.
Can I switch food groups between meals?
Avoid major changes to the meal pattern.
Some minor changes, which are acceptable:
Move a fat from one meal to another to allow for use in cooking or in a menu item. Do not increase total amount of fat per day.
Snack time may be moved. For example, if you are not finding time for the AM snack but find yourself hungry prior to dinner, you can move the snack
Milk exchange may be relocated. Avoid “doubling up”
Occasionally a lighter meal can be taken to allow for a special event at the next meal e.g. a dinner party, or eating out.
Always note changes for your next nutrition visit.
What if I go off my diet?
This may happen for a variety of reasons. Overwhelmingly negative thoughts are not helpful. Remain positive and get back on the diet. Keep your next appointment. Try to identify why the interruption occurred and discuss it with your nutritionist as needed. Remember, lifestyle change is a process.
What if the plan is not a good fit for me?
Remember that you are making a major change and some friction is to be expected. Try to accept this as part of the process. If the diet plan is not working out, identify specific problem areas and discuss them with your nutritionist.
What if I don’t get it “exact”?
It is not necessary to be “exact” regarding specifics of the diet. The focus is on controlling portion sizes within reason and changing the type of foods eaten to more healthy selections. For example, a tablespoon extra of rice is not going to make a significant difference. As the diet is learning-based, you will naturally become more adept in time. Explore these issues with your nutritionist.
